Your Travel Arrangements

To give you a wider choice and more flexibility we do not provide fixed transport arrangements. You can therefore choose your own preferred transport method to travel to and from the resort. Here is some information about all transport methods to help you decide.

BY CAR          BY RAIL          BY AIR inc transfers

By Car

To Ballenberg - Meribel

The village of Chandon is approximately 600 miles from the ferry port and you can travel almost all of the way by motorway. The tolls cost around 45.00 each way. Public parking is available near to the chalets for the full duration of your stay.

If you do choose to travel by car we recommend that you use www.mappy.com for directions as this site always guide you avoiding tunnels and col roads that are sometimes closed in the winter. Once on this site enter your departing point and enter "73550" as the postcode for your destination. We always recommend that you use these directions along with your own map. Upon entering the village stop at the first bus stop on your right and call the chalet (number available from our office from December) where staff will direct you to the chalet and the parking point.

By Hire Car

Most of the large hire car companies have offices in the local airports. We recommend that you obtain at least two quotes as prices and availability can vary. Don't forget to order snow chains because you just never know! Also a roof rack / top box could be useful for small boot space. Try the company you book your flights with first as they often offer cheaper options than if you book direct with the hire car company. If you are travelling by hire car please see the self drive information for more about how to find your chalet. Parking is available near to the chalets for the full duration of your stay. Be aware of the country you are hiring from in Geneva as there is a French side and a Swiss side to the airport. Most companies have offices on both sides so find out which side you are flying to before reserving a car.
